Jessica Chastain Feted at Deauville American Film Festival

PARIS– Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”) will be feted at Deauville American Film Festival with a tribute.

Previous Deauville honorees include Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Susan Sarandon, Robin Wright and Naomi Watts.

“Through her successive roles, (Chastain) has confirmed her emotional capacity to grab the limelight like no one since Nicole Kidman, and the Festival presented her with its “New Hollywood” award.(…) We salute her grace and talent, and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance, which Christopher Nolan and Guillermo del Toro will raise to new heights in their forthcoming films,” said Bruno Barde, Deauville’s artistic director.

Added Barde, “The tribute is a token of our affection, admiration, recognition and esteem for the talent of the recipient. For the past few years, we have been paying tribute to those actresses who embody the cinema of today, and who will form the legacy of tomorrow.”

Chastain has been on Deauville’s radar since her performance in Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” She received the festival’s New Hollywood award in 2011, the release year of “Take Shelter,” which won Deauville’s Grand Prize.

The star’s upcoming movies include “A Most Violent Year,” Del Toro’s “Crimson Peak,” “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” “Miss July” and Nolan’s “Interstellar.”
